I was instantly hooked with beading. PotomacBeads was right there with beautiful designs, hundreds of hours of YouTube content, and the best and nicest customer service. Being able to sit down with some beads, and be told what to do and how to do it, and end up with something beautiful to show for the time spent is just the perfect counterbalance for the stresses of life.

Thank you all so much for bringing some extra joy and peace into my life! I am so grateful. 💚"

"I've tried other boxes, but they don't hold a candle to Potomac's Best Bead Box! I received my first box and I must say, you can see the care that went into this box. From the lovely magnetic box that holds all the goodies, down to the patterns and items in the box, I felt like I was opening a gift that was made especially for me. Other boxes that I have tried had the beads wrapped in tissue paper and a list. I had to spend time guessing what items were what as nothing is labeled. PLUS the boxes are similar in price, but only Potomac's screamed quality. I cannot recommend this subscription highly enough!"
